Visiting undergraduate students who do not intend to transfer to Mason may be considered for non-degree admission as a guest matriculant. If your intent is to transfer to Mason to earn a bachelor’s degree, you may not enroll as a visiting student. Please review our transfer admission guidelines at: admissions.gmu.edu/transfer. Visiting undergraduates should consult with their advisor and have permission to transfer Mason courses back to their home institution prior to application. Visiting Undergraduate students are offered admission for one semester and may register for a maximum of 10 credits. All non-degree students are ineligible for federal financial aid and register after degree-seeking students. Some undergraduate courses may be restricted to enrollment by degree-seeking students only.
Requirements for Applying as a Visiting Student:
- Online Application
- Non-refundable application fee of $60 dollars
- Official transcripts from previous colleges/universities or a letter of good standing from each institution. The Admissions Committee reserves the right to require transcripts in lieu of letters of good standing. If you wish to enroll in a Mason course that has a pre-requisite requirement, we suggest you send all transcripts.
- Please check to ensure the course you need is being offered the semester you’re applying to take courses. You may search our schedule of classes here. The descriptions of courses offered at Mason can be found in the university catalog.

The Office of Admissions cannot issue registration overrides.
